Te Kopahou Reserve: Island Bay to Brooklyn

  • Shorland Park rotunda

    Island Bay Parade, Island Bay, Wellington (map)

    -41.342670 174.770325

























    If you want to see Island Bay, Te Kopahou Reserve, the Radome, the Karori Wind Turbine and Brooklyn all in one day then this is for you!

    What we’ll be doing

    We'll gather at the Shorland Park rotunda at Island Bay, the terminus for the number one bus.

    We'll walk along the Esplanade to Owhiro Bay, walk along Red Rocks beach, walk up into the Te Kopahou Reserve then up to the Radome, along to the Karori Wind Turbine and then down through Brooklyn to catch the bus (or walk!) back into town.

    This is a one way walk starting at Island Bay and ending in Brooklyn, so it'll be easier to leave the car at home.


    5 - 6hours


    7/10 a very good level of fitness is required (this is a very long walk and some areas are steep. See FAQ for more info).



    What to bring

    Wind and waterproof outer, warm clothing (layers as the climate will change a number of times along this walk), something to eat, water and sturdy footwear.

    * Thanks to Sue for hosting!

    Hi, who else will be taking the bus and which bus will you be on? Hopefully I can meet one of you on the bus so I get off at the right spot.

    Sorry to cancel at the last minute, but I've come down with a cold, so I wont be up to a 6 hour walk

    This is an awesome walk, stunning views with some steep sections and maybe a stream crossing at the lowest part of the Radome Track I believe. Will hopefully be doing a variation on this track soon
